Speaking to E! the well-placed source revealed that the couple have been discussing the idea of marriage for some time.
The source said: ‘While Meghan may not be wearing a ring or a formal engagement announced, it’s fair to say they’re as good as engaged now.’
‘They’ve spoken about their marriage plans openly with each other, and friends and family around them are pretty much thinking about wedding attire already!’
It certainly appears that the pair are going from strength to strength with the presence of Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland at the Invictus Games regarded as highly significant.

The source added that Harry and Doria had met long before their appearance together and are getting along well.
They continued: ‘They actually met late last year so they’re very close now. Doria sees Harry as one of the family and he sees her like family too.’
While insiders claim that marriage is certainly on the cards the couple are yet to announce their engagement.
Some predicted that the royal might pop the question on Meghan’s birthday at the beginning of August, however another royal insider predicts that we could be looking at a Christmas proposal.
A former member of the royal household has predicted that Prince Harry will pop the question to Meghan Markle in December
If Harry did propose in December Meghan would be able to join other members of the royal family for their traditional Christmas celebrations at Sandringham
Former chef to Princess Diana and her two sons Darren McGrady anticipates that the couple will announce their marriage plans this December.
Speaking to Hello! Darren said: ‘I really do think they would have been engaged by now. But Princess Diana’s 20th anniversary this month in August, they can’t trump that.
‘And then November is the Queen and Prince Philip’s platinum wedding anniversary so they can’t trump that either, whereas December they can announce the engagement and they’d be free to marry next year; I think that’s what’s going to happen.’
McGrady, who describes the US actress as ‘naturally like Diana’ added that if Harry does propose in December Meghan will be able to join the family at Sandringham for their traditional Christmas celebrations.
Harry and Meghan have been dating for over a year now, maintaining a long distant relationship between their two homes of London and Toronto.
According to reports Meghan plans to move to the UK and give up much of her acting after being introduced to the prince by Soho House director Markus Anderson in London.
The 1772 Royal Marriages Act, amended in 2013, means the Queen must consent to the weddings of the first six people in line to the Throne, with Prince Harry being fifth.
Meghan, who divorced film producer husband Trevor Engelson four years ago, would be permitted to marry in the Church of England’s Westminster Abbey following the General Synod Ruling of 2002.
